wireless or wired

Can anyone offer me advice on the following.
Currently I have a 20mb virgin media connection and a wireless router.
What i would like to know is, if I connect my wireless router to my laptop using the wired ethernet ports on the back of the wireless router(in other words bypass the wireless side of things) will the speed of my connection be the same as if i was actually connected using wireless.
Does the speed increase if I directly connect my laptop to the modem or is there no difference.
By the way I/m using a belkin 54g wireless router if it helps.
